ONITSHA—Disengaged 148 staff of Anambra Broadcasting Service, ABS, Radio/Television, Awka and Onitsha, have petitioned Speaker, Anambra State House of Assembly, Mrs. Chinwe Nwaebili, asking her to look into their predicaments.
In the five-page petition jointly signed by 18 of the workers, the y complained that their disengagement memo of March 1, this year which was captioned: “Rationalization/Redeployment of 148 ABS staff”, had directed them to report to the office of the state Head of Service for redeployment to other relevant ministries.
The petitioners stated that when they assembled at ABS headquarters, Awka, on March 4, hoping to be issued with their letters of redeployment as stipulated in the public rule, they were again asked to go to the Head of Service who referred them back to ABS.
They quoted the head of service as saying there was no such arrangement by the state government to the best of his knowledge.
